METAIRIE, La. - Powerball vendors expected to see an increase in customers Wednesday morning as the jackpot rose to $360 million.
The jackpot is the third largest of all time.
The cash value is nearly $230 million.
March 30 was the last time a player hit the jackpot.
The beginning of 2013 has proven to be lucky for locals. There have been four Powerball prizes of at least $1 million sold in Louisiana so far.
Tickets must be purchased before 9 p.m. Wednesday.
The winning numbers will be announced on the Eyewitness News at 10 p.m.
